      Nice clean hotel in a convenient location”

      Clean, easy location and nicely decoreated

      It was a lovely weekend stay. Slightly inconvenient that the bar staff have to do hotel check ins - but not really a problem. They do the job excellently. The private room was nice - happily surprised to have a little fridge and kitchenette in the room. The only thing that would improve the room would be to have a mirror and Internet in the room. Shared bathroom was lovely. At first I was a bit worried about noise from the pub... But not an issue at all. Very pleasant stay overall.

      It was a comfortable stay in an upgraded 6 bed dorm. Rooms are very sparse, no power plugs even though this was no concern to me. Clean bathrooms well stocked with soap and toilet paper, seemed to be more than enough bathrooms on each level. Great value for a night stay. Staff made a great welcome, were helpful and frendly. Free simple brekkie, and a wow of a balcony at the top

      VERY BAD HOSTEL”

      The good thing about Clover Backpackers is the location, near Oxford Street, but that’s pretty much it! The rooms are quite a mess, full of dust and the bunk beds are old and worn-out. In the kitchen aren’t any plates or cutlery, you need to get it from the reception for a 10$ deposit and in the fridge we saw mold!! Also it’s very loud in the evening, because there’s directly a bar. The new owner is really, really rude and disrespectful to his guest! He kicked us out of the Hostel and called the police in the middle of the night, because we smoked some cigarettes on the balcony (there was a ashtray on the table and no sign that smoking is not allowed). Very bad attitude and experience! If you want to have a nice time and a good accomodation in Sydney, do yourself a favour and do not stay there (although it‘s very cheap)

      Cheap”

      Although most staff members were friendly, I did not enjoy my stay here. The place was packed, my dorm room quite dirty, and the bedding incomplete. For example, I saw no blanket covers in use, which I didn't find hygienic. The bathroom did not seem very clean and was inconvenient to use. What I found remarkable: there were two sinks whose pipes conjoined and ended in one of the shower tubs; you can call me squeamish, but I think once something goes down the drain it should not cross anyone's feet again, even if that person is wearing flip flops in the shower of a cheap hostel.

      average stay but good for only use room to sleep.”

      centrally located (easy access to public transport), shared bathroom was clean, hotel rooms are located in a nice quiet area separate from the hotel bar and dorms.

      i would say the stay at the captain cook hotel was pretty average as they failed to provide us with clean bed linen and towels also there was a cockroach in the room and wifi is only available in the bar. apart from this, it is located centrally(near to public transport), shared bathroom was clean (didn't have to wait around to use it), if you are someone that travel around and only use the room to sleep this place will suit you.

      Worst place I have ever stayed”

      Checked in and having requested a double room in advanced was thrown into what I would compare to a jail cell. 2 creeky bunk beds, no guard rail on the top one and also missing 3/4 slats in the middle of it - bed bug ridden and disgusting marks all over the sheets. Shared toilets where worse, pee all over the floor, cobwebs wig big spiders above the showers, some of which the doors didn’t lock. Banging all night and the wind from he open window in the hall rattled our door all night keeping us awake in our roasting hot room.
